The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Census Bureau have awarded more than $20 million in interdisciplinary research grants aimed at finding new ways to unlock social, behavioral, and economic data, including data gained every 10 years from the census. Eight research awards have been made by the NSF-Census Research Network, a joint funding opportunity supported by the two federal agencies to establish a set of research nodes that will conduct long-term, interdisciplinary, methodological research and educational activities on issues relevant for the production of data and related statistics. In addition to generating new research methods, advanced practices, and procedures, the nodes will relate basic research findings to the problems of the Federal Statistical System.
